[video clip] >> the enrollment numbers, which we will release next week, which will be the first month of enrollments, are likely to be quite low given the struggles that people have had getting access to the site and getting information. >> do you expect the numbers to be very high during the month of november and december? >> well, i am hoping that with the site improvements we will see more robust numbers, but fullythe site is improved and we have opened up the doors wide to a lot of people, we are going to have i think a struggle getting significant numbers to sign up. >> sure. talkingthleen sebelius about the expectations game. what else was your take away from her testimony this past week? guest: the administration is that for a long time they have always expected that the majority of people would be more motivated by a deadline to sign up so people would not necessarily come in in october. a vet to revive a campaign more dramatically -- they've had to revise that cam

on the implementation of the affordable care act and the healthcare.gov website. halfling sebelius testified -- kathleen sebelius does divide on wednesday and apologized for the flaws of the website as it was launched october 1. >> thank you. members of the committee, i left my position as governor of kansas for the opportunity to continue the work i've been doing for most of my over 35 years of public service to expand opportunities for all americans, gardens of geography or gender or income to have affordable health coverage. during my years as a state is a governor, a two-term i have worked on that effort that i care deeply about. there are still millions of americans who are uninsured as well as underinsured. forle have some coverage some illness, but had no real protection from financial ruin and no confidence he will take care of themselves and their families if they have an accident or an illness. and for them a new day has finally come. in these early weeks, access to healthcare.gov has been miserably frustrating experience for way too many americans. including many who have waiting sometimes th
's my friend. >> better than he gave to kathleen sebelius. >> exactly. >> this was a lot better. >> so texas governor rick perry was in iowa. he's clearly prepping for another run for the white house. let's listen to what he said. rather interesting. >> we're losing the country we love to a government that is too big, too arrogant, too controlling of our every day lives. our leaders have forgotten how to govern. believe me, i know a few things about forgetting. >> obviously during the key debate moment where he forgot -- >> the three agencies he would eliminate. >> exactly. >> should he have even brought this up? >> absolutely. >> because he's still battling this going into another cycle. >> surest way to get rid of something is to make fun of yourself. he has been joking about that now for how many years, right, since he first -- >> might voters forgive him? >> a lot of people think it's crazy for him to get back out there because his campaign was so disastrous. yes, voters do forgive people. often if you make fun, that kind of humor is great and is it a long shot for him to rehabilit
in the 1200 pages. >> there are other issues of the navigators. during testimony at a hearing, kathleen sebelius, the secretary of health and community service said felons could be hired, which could give information to personal information. >> so a convicted fellon could be a navigator and require sensitive information from an individual unbeknowns to them? >> that is possible. we have contracts with the organizations and they've taken the responsibility to screen their individual navigators and make sure that they are sufficiently trained for the job. >> so, again here, linda, people who are nervous about giving their personal information when they hear this kind of thing can't be good. >> i would agree. i wouldn't want someone in a prison taking my information, because identity theft ring starts in many areas. prisons are one. seriously it's on the scary tactic side for someone to find out someone has that information, my information, identity thefts that start in prison and spread to the outside world because they have connections. >> what do you recommend to people? how should the
for numbers. secretary kathleen sebelius has insisted she's not going to report any numbers until next week. senators orrin hatch and chuck grassley who questioned her about this on the finance committee, out with numbers this morning. they say they have contacted the four insurers on the washington, d.c., exchange, and as far as insurers are concerned, only five people at this point are enrolled. two of them at care first blue cross blue shield, three at kaiser-permanente, none at united health and aetna. however, you have to take these numbers with a grain of salt. because the d.c. exchanges has officially reported that as of october 21st, they had 164 people who had enrolled, those enrollments paid and there were 321 total who had selected plans. so this could be an issue with a lot of those insurance documents, sue, not making their way to the insurers but people having completed the process, one of the things that the secretary has said one of the reasons why she hasn't given interim numbers. >> absolutely, bertha. thank you very much. >>> let's go to dominic chu, he has a quick market
. yesterday we heard kathleen sebelius or just a short time ago today, she was in atlanta. did she give hints as to what they might be looking at or are they saying we're going to do this but don't know how yet? >> at this point they're not tipping their hand what they're going to be doing. sebelius only said to reporters in atlanta they didn't have a plan on the table at this point. they could have a plan in their drawer in their desk somewhere or floating around inside other offices inside hhs. they're not willing to talk about that at this point. there are various reports out there perhaps they're looking at expanding subsidies for people to obtain insurance on these exchanges. why would that happen? because if people are seeing their pols are being canceled and the only option that's available costs more money, then perhaps those expanded subsidies might be helpful. i have tried to ask a variety of officials over here at the white house as to whether or not that is the case. nobody is willing to confirm that, and of course, that may require some kind of legislation to expand those subsidi
and human services secretary kathleen sebelius weighed in to say there is no plan to help people who lost their health care and now face way higher health care costs. >> there isn't i would say a specific plan. the president has asked to take a look at those coverage options. but there isn't any specific proposal at the table immediately. >> ouch! on top of that republicans put out some shockingly abysmal numbers of enrollment in one city, washington, d.c. jim, another rough day. >> reporter: president obama was down in new orleans. he nounced that fixing the problems playinging the website will be far from it. he did not touch on that apology he offered to americans who were losing their health insurance. officials do insist they're searching for solutions for those consume here's are seeing their coverage canceled. obama care continues to be in critical condition. senate republicans released letters from top insurance companies indicating only five people signed up in washington, d.c. in october. the d.c. officials said those numbers don't show the whole picture of enrollment and intere
, but there is no need to delay the medical insurance enrollment process. that is the message kathleen sebelius took to capitol hill yesterday. she had to do more than defend the law. she had to defend herself. >> your main goal should have been to protect americans to lessen their risk and ensure their safety, but in your zeal to implement this law, nothing would implement you from deterring the changes. you said america should hold you accountable, which is why to do, madam secretary, i repeat my request for you to resign. >> sebelius offered no resignation and fought off the call for a delay to the rollout of obamacare. >> some have asked why not delay implementation of the new law until all of the problems are fixed, and there's a pretty straight forward answer. delaying the affordable care act wouldn't delay people's cancer or diabetes or parkinson's. it didn't delay the need for mental health services or cholesterol screenings or prenatal care. delaying the affordable care act doesn't delay the foreclosure notices for families forced into bankruptcy by unpayable medical bills. >> the troubled
secretary kathleen sebelius announced new rules that will make mental healthcare more accessible. the announcement comes as the administration, of course, is still reeling from the failed launch of healthcare.gov. >> good morning, everybody. >> reporter: speaking to healthcare professionals in atlanta, secretary sebelius did not announce a new law, but rather, new rules that put teeth into a law signed by president george w. bush in 2008. the mental health parity and addiction equality act requires doctors and insurers to treat mental illnesses as they would physical illnesses, but there's been no enforcement until now. >> finally puts mental health services and substance abuse on equal footing with physical health services. >> reporter: but the big announcement was overshadowed by lingering backlash from the implementation of the affordable care act. secretary sebelius was asked how the administration plans to help those kicked off their insurance plans since the rollout. >> there isn't, i would say at this point, a specific plan. the president has asked to take a look at those
secretary kathleen sebelius testifies for the second time since the troubled rollout of healthcare.gov. nan sis cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, good morning. >> good morning, norah. that's right. she ee going to be testifying before the senate committee. she's going to highlight all the improvements. yesterday the head of the centers for medicare and medicaid which oversaw the rollout testified that it's now easier to create an account and easier to browse plans without creating an account. still, she faced tough criticism, not just from republicans as you would expect but also from democrats who worried that all the problems with the website have scared away the young people that they need to sign up in order to make the program work. >> i believe that there's been a crisis of confidence created in the dysfunctional nature of the website, the canceling of policies, and sticker shock from some people. do you have a plan to get the young people back? >> yes we do and we will roll out that plan. our goal is to stabilize the website this month and then we do h
health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius claims is now improving daily. >> first of all, i'd say, it is running right now, every day people are coming through, every day people are getting enrolled. >> reporter: mark your calendars for november 30th. the white house says it will be working for, quote, the vast majority of users by the end of the month. >> it is our conviction that we can, with the fixes being implemented reach that goal by november 30th. >> reporter: the administration is under pressure to work fast. a bill by mary landrieu would allow americans to keep their insurance plans, an idea they worry could undermine the whole program. >> does anybody have any idea how much all this is going to cost us in the end? we've spent $600 million already. >> reporter: white house top officials including chief of staff dennis mcdonough are expected to head up to capitol hill to talk to senate democrats about some of these proposals that would allow americans to keep their insurance plan if they like it. i had a chance to catch up with mcdonough in the driveway of the white
nice to kathleen intel sebelius or a number of other people i could think of. >> it is striking me as interesting because the comments of these individuals, intentional or not, again, trying to undermine the legitimacy of the first african-american president, credibility, same thing with attorney general holder and there's no there there is obviously a great offense on many levels. but, you know, eric, we all kind of know how this game goes. right? they feel like they're justified going after eric holder because they feel like they were in office and we went after their folks they, i don't know, started a war and things like that. there's an idea of this false equivalency but to the point that e.j. was making about the votes rights act, it also strikes many e that, you know, these kinds of fake scandals -- >> yes. >> time and resources are dedicated to -- i had to do it myself. xeroxing pages and pageless of whatever to get documents instead of going after texas on voter i.d. laws or making sure that laws are being implemented the way they should be. so i mean, it's interesting to
: secretary kathleen sebelius promised congress the affordable care website will work better. pat roberts says his kansas voters are losing more than they'll gain with the new law. >> in fact, more people are losing their insurance than are signing up on the website. >> reporter: the health and human services secretary says many losing their policies wind up getting a better deal with the affordable care act and with tax subsidies will pay less. she's admitted registering and applying on line hasn't worked well yet. t healthcare.gov has been a miserably frustrating experience for far too many of these for far nacceptable.these i am focused on fixing it. >> reporter: not good enough for angry republican s who accused her of misleading americans about the program. senator demandihe resign. the say staff oun he's leaving his post focus direct enrollment t cons experience and those upgrades s between now and the end of noveer. andfield, abc news, washington. >> seems sometimes vice president biden just can't get it right. case in point, biden put in a call to congratulate the new mayor of boston
away from that. as is health secretary kathleen sebelius. she spoke this morning, saying the same thing. take a listen. >> we are committed that by the end of november, the site will be functioning much more optimally. the site is much better today than it was. but in three and a half weeks, we want it operating at a much different pace. >> all right, so bob, you said you want to cut through the rhetoric. let's do that. we still have not heard the word fixed. then you have young people, a lot of young people who, they're needed for this. they're not signing up in the numbers needed. if you don't get the revenue needed from this, then does the whole system implode? >> absolutely, it does. that's going to be the test of this law. let's see after six months or however long they extend the period, let's see in fact how many young people enroll. we knew from the massachusetts speerjs, many young people enrolled in the latter part of the enrollment period. the important part here is to cut through the right-wing twerking we're hearing ben espouse, his rhetoric, and look at the fact. >> i don'
to ask about is mental health care access because we did see kathleen sebelius talking about sort of making that even -- what do we know about that disparity? >> first of all, we were talking earlier about chronic stress, of experiencing racism, being poor, and if you develop depression, an anxiety condition, there are good treatments out there. and yet mental health care is so under available, so underfunded, and so what do people do? they turn to alcohol, drugs, self-treatment, and those make the problem worse. and, i mean, that, if i could do one thing it would be improving treatment for mental health care and making it widely accessible. >> i live in the seventh ward in new orleans and the people living in poor communities sometimes feels like everyone has posttraumatic stress. not that you want to medicalize whole communities but you have the sense that there is care that is needed. thank you doctor and heather mcghee and avik roy. something amazing happened in an operating room in san francisco this week. this is how we all felt when we were about to get medical treatment an
on the phone and called everybody from the president's office to kathleen sebelius down to the fda and they finally agreed. now, i know we're going to save hundreds and hundreds of thousands of lives throughout america and i know. and that's a proud moment when you know you can make a difference such as that. i was proud of that. >> senator hoeven? >> that's the work i've done to support our men and women in uniform and our military and the great work they've done. and joe and i worked together on veterans and some of those things. so the work i've been able to do on behalf of the military, families and some of the vets that come back disabled and then trying to hire a vet. those kind of things. >> we worked on student loans. >> yeah. >> working that problem. it was governors, former governors that sit down, work together. we can tell you -- we made all the mistakes you can make. give you some of our experience. that's what we've asked for, but very few people -- >> what do you mean we've made all the mistakes you can make now? >> made a few. but we've learned from them. we're grow
from administration officials and kathleen sebelius essentially saying no one should get in the wake of a woman's reproductive rights and her doctor. that is the issue the court ultimately will have to decide, correct? absolutely. supporters of the law say it is necessary to protect women's rights, and of -- part of the affordable care act act to make sure women have preventable screenings. they also say leading religious business owners off the hook when it comes to contraception to allowinghe door businesses to interfere with her own personal health care choices. there have been a couple of cases working their way through the court system on the issue of earth control mandate. it is not necessarily a surprise that the court decided to take up the case yesterday, but certainly going to be a much cheap-watched case when oral arguments happen next round. on thist me follow up point. obviously the supreme court has taken up the larger issue of the constitutionality of the affordable care act. this creates another political battle for the white house. absolutely. going to be a heated an
hill yesterday for questions from senators on the finance committee -- kathleen civilian sebelius returned to capitol hill yesterday for questions from senators on the finance committee. this is about 2 1/2 hours. [no audio] [no audio] >> we will come to order. in february, 1958, against the backdrop of a divided nation , a junior senator from massachusetts spoke at a college in baltimore. the young senator, named john kennedy, said -- let us not despair the act. let us not seek the republican answer or the democratic answer, but the right answer. let us not seek to fix the blame for the past, let us accept our own responsibility for the future. ". more than 55 years later, jfk's advice reigns true. it is important to remember now as we implement the affordable care act. five weeks ago the end -- the administration launched www.c- launched healthcare.gov. it was to be the premier website for the affordable care act. needless to say, it has been a rocky rollout. problems have plagued the website. let me say right off the bat that this is unacceptable. it has been disappointing to y
're not getting paid. >> kathleen sebelius pledged to congress that this website would be up and running by the end of this month november 2013. is that going to happen, do you think? >> i don't know how it would happen but, again, this is an administration. we've watched five years of this. they can talk the talk but can't walk the walk. by deepest disappointment the american people have witnessed total incompetence. and their expectations for a good performance are so low that they expect everything to fail. that's wrong. these are hard-working american taxpayers who get up every morning, throw their feet out of bed, go to work so they can provide benefits for their family. where in the world is the accountability and who is being held responsible for coming up short in a can't find anybody who says it's my bad. the president himself said i'm sorry people misunderstood what i said and i'm sorry you can't tell the truth. >> we have to leave it. one word. do you think you'll get a response? you said you wanted one in 14 days. will you get it? >> our job in congress is oversight. we can l
